|"Once a week whether you need it or not!"|
|The ideal time to write a to do list.|Put Baby Jane Quilt and October Bee block in the mail - due TWO WEEKS AGO!
- Clean my work space. My husband just put in a closet in around the corner from my quilting "den" and the whole basement area is a crazy mess. I am usually really good about ignoring sewing room messes and continuing to sew, but it has moved beyond even my tolerance level. Due ASAP so I can get some work done!
We Can Do It! Skill Builder Sampler blocks - need to make one tomorrow!
- Quilt Rachel's quilt on the long arm. I took my first long arm class today and am now qualified to rent time on the machine!!! Scheduled for Monday afternoon.
Finish fall inspired bag for guild swap - due 11/17. I am making this bag. So cute!
- Make November Bake Shop project - due by mid Nov.
- Send back November Bee Block - due end of Nov.
- Make some skirts for Emily. She really needs something for Sundays. I have the fabric but keep putting it off. Will work on this during Thanksgiving since she will be around for fittings.
- Make December Bake Shop project - due end Nov./beginning Dec
- Prep drawstring bag fabric for church service project - due beginning of Dec. I will share more about this project later. I think it is a really meaningful service opportunity.
- Finish the drawstring bags that I was going to give all the cousins last Christmas. Due mid-Dec
- Finish Improv. Quilt - January
- Make blocks for the 4x5 Modern Bee. I have my fabrics already pulled for these. I am going to make three mini hexagon flowers and applique them on a solid background. I have over 48 hours of airport travel scheduled for December, so I thought a handwork heavy block would be a good idea. Due mid January
- Start and finish liberated fan quilt by February. Or at least a large number of blocks? I am teaching a class on liberated tumblers and fans for the local guild and need to do some serious prep work. Eeek! Yet rather proud.
- The chicken quilt - it is for baby Calvin who is now almost 3 months old. It is bound and basted and just waiting for quilting. Oh, I want to show it off at the guild meeting.... Due Nov. 17 if at all possible.
- The HST quilt. This quilts is in yellows and will be for my sadly neglected living room. I borrowed my friend's Go! and cut out all of the million HST and have pieced about 1/3 of them. I want to work on it so much, but it doesn't really have a due date.
- Clogs - baby, kid and manly size
- Grandmother's Flower Garden
- Stars and Pinwheel quilt, 1930's quilt, scrapy 9-patch and dresden quilt, all of which haven't seen the light of day for months to years.
Ok, I still feel overwhelmed. This is insane!! I told Lee I only had 5-7 projects going at a time - I think I was in denial. I need to be more like Alison who works on one thing at a time. That is my new plan. I will just work down my list and finish every project one at a time. And no matter how much I want to, I will not start anything else until this list is finished. Right???
Sorry there aren't any quilty pictures, but the idea of descending into The Mess to take pictures, download, edit and upload is beyond me at this point.
